Muzik 4 machines is a band from Montreal, Canada, which produces electronic music with a grunge twist.
The band was formed in 1996 by TBA03 and was particularly active from 1999 to 2002. From 2002 to 2005, Tb concentrated on some solo works and third-party productions. In 2008, they resumed where they left with some outside gigs and events during the summer and shows in small venues and bars.
It started as a 1 man project, equipped with a Portastudio, a guitar and a TR-707 drum machine, early compositions were a mix between early house and grunge music, mixing the 4 on the floor rhythm with loud fuzz guitar. As the technology evolved, so did the Project; recruiting performers and signers and buying, finding or building new gadgets and sound mangling devices. When computer became powerful enough to generate and precess sound, a new page of M4M history started.
The Music also evolved from simple riffs over a steady beat to more complex and mysterious texture in some works and at the same time exploded into Rave party music in others. The band got some good charts apparition online and even sold Cd's worldwide on the then underground mp3.com website that since closed.
Over the years, different styles were explored as the personel changed (house music, techno, drum and bass, rock, noise rock, pop, trance, urban music and some unclassifiable sounds). Performers including Luke, MisterW, YUL and DP participated to different Live events and special recordings (all available online).
Back to housy-electro-Rock&noise, the band now produces new material, performs it live, and uploads it to youtube.
